In a year or so your going to see the D-backs and Dodgers start playing good baseball with young kids. The D-backs have alot of young prospects that have good potential. For now though the West is going to be a two team race between the Padres/Dodgers again. Im very happy that Ned kept the Kids again this offseason and Dodgers have probably the best rotation in the NL.
I could see the Diamondbacks sneaking up and winning the West. With Quentin, Drew and Jackson, they've got an excellent core of young players to build around and the farm system has more prospects waiting in the wings.
